Transit

Status: On track to launch service in the Fall of 2021. 

Background

As Chestermere continues to grow, City Council and Administration are considering ways in which to improve services for current and future citizens. 

Intermunicipal public transit is a service offered by many municipalities to help residents commute between municipalities.

Transit can provide mobility options for residents without vehicles, improve a community’s environmental outcomes by taking cars off the road, enable more affordable lifestyles, and encourage social interactions amongst riders. 

What is being considered: Chestermere is currently in discussions with the City of Calgary to explore an extension of the Max Purple line to Chestermere. 

Please note: a local transit service (buses offering multiple stops in Chestermere only) is not being considered at this time.

Latest Update:

On March 16, 2021, Chestermere’s Administration presented a project update to Council that include background, potential stop locations, a communication plan, and more information.
